Giovani Bernard leaves game with rib injury, 'should be ok'

Michael Silver, Twitter - [Full Article]

Bengals RB Giovani Bernard was forced from Thursday night's game with a rib injury and did not return.

Update -- Michael Silver on Twitter: "Some non-brutal Bengals news: Gio Bernard has a rib issue, should be ok."

Fantasy Impact: 

Prior to the injury, Bernard gained 104 total yards and scored two TDs, including a brilliant 35-yard TD run where he completely changed the direction of the play. He appeared to be in pain on the sideline and later headed to the locker room for X-rays. BenJarvus Green-Ellis will see extra work if Bernard misses any time. The Bengals don't have their bye until Week 12.
